In the pictures, Koechlin's partner Guy Hershberg is seen holding the baby. Koechlin thanked the doctors who convinced her to opt for a natural delivery despite undergoing labour pain for 17 hours.
"So thankful to the whole team at Tulip Women's Care and to my doctors, Dr Sheetal Sabharwal and Dr RV Punjabi, who simply refused to give up on me even after 17 hours. I was so tired I begged them to take the baby out anyway they could and they said no," she posted.
